I wrote this back in 1994. I've recorded it about 6 times. This is the most recent. Bass, drums, cigar box guitar rhythm and leads, and plenty of vocals.

Great sounding mix. I love the layers of vocals too. Excellent.

Thankfully most of that time is spent playing and singing the parts.

Yup, that's a lot of time and work for a 3:20 song but the results are real good.

Thanks, Jim. The thing is, to get the same recording capabilities on pc I'd have to fork out some cash. It's time consuming to use this method, but I have it down and the finished product is so worth it. I actually record each part for the duration of the song. So 3:20 times 12-16 tracks. Another 3-5 minutes to burn the disc, another 3 to rip the disc to the computer. Then the mixing begins. An average of 3-4 hours to record a song.

Excellent!! Thanks for the info about your recording process too.

Audacity is a free multitrack recording program for the computer. If using a standard sound card there is a prohibitive latency issue. But for editing it is fine. It's very basic. My process is tedious. My sound quality on the Fostex digital multitracker is excellent. But editing is not an option. What I do is burn each track as an individual song on a cd. Then I rip the CD to the computer and edit to my hearts content. Email the song to myself, open on the iPhone with iMovie and make a video.

Sometimes old and low tech works just fine as in you case. I use an old Zoom multitrack myself, curious, do you record direct from multitrack to an iPhone app. Or from speakers? I use an iPad and I'm trying to record direct to iMovie app. Sound isn't quite what I want and I can't monitor it, which sucks. Is audacity an app? Thanks

Thanks, Richard. Everything is low tech or old tech. Video was made on my iPhone from shots taken with my iPhone. Recorded at home on 17 year old technology CD burner based multitrack recorder. Mixed in audacity. And I can't read music and have never had a lesson.
